Where oh Where is Little D?

I'm here - but wow has this month been a crazy busy month!  Haven't had much time for stampin' and card making - but was finally able to sit down and go at 'er!  This is my Aloha Rak for my partner.  The challenge was for note cards. I took mine in a little bit different direction.  I made four cards all the same and a holder for the cards and envelopes.  It's a pretty simple design but I think it's quite elegant!  I hope my partner likes it!

This is a card I made for friends of ours who just had their first baby. 

Madison Maureen Skjodt was born on July 22nd.  It's a Double Diagonal fold card.  Quite a simple design and I really like the idea that you can add your own elements to the inserts.  For this one I attached the gift card to a book mark and slipped into the middle pouch.  You can even place another insert into the top pouch.

And finally - Tracy's Christmas Challenge.  

This month's challenge was to create a card with no layers.  This was actually tougher than I thought it would be.  I kept it simple and made a window card.  So from the front it looks like layers - but it's not.  The image is on the inside of the card.  I added a ribbon to the top of the card and a couple of Snowflakes brads for some bling.  I might go back and revisit these ones and maybe add a bit more bling - but I think I actually like the simplicity of it.

I still have a couple of more cards to do this weekend so will hopefully have another post by the end of the weekend.  Babies, Birthdays and Funerals....oh my!  My youngest nephew turns 18 on Monday - wow - can't believe that!!  A friend of ours lost his dad on the weekend and the funeral is on Tuesday.  

Hope everyone is having a great summer!  We've finally have had a stretch of hot weather and this weekend is supposed to be a bit of a scorcher.  I will definitely get out and enjoy it!  Of course with my 60 sunscreen!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
